As a lawyer with over 20 years experience, Mark Streed has been an advocate for good and decent people in their struggle to get fair treatment from insurance companies and other powerful corporate interests. Mr. Streed has successfully represented clients with devastating injuries and economic losses throughout the seven county Metro area, the State of Minnesota, and western Wisconsin. Whether in the courtroom, office, his client’s home, or on the telephone, Mr. Streed and his experienced staff represent clients with a compassionate heart and a willingness to listen to their concerns.
Faced with laws that unfairly restricted the rights of injured citizens, Mr. Streed has challenged those laws by taking his client’s causes to the Minnesota Court of Appeals and Minnesota Supreme Court, where he advocated for the needed changes in the law and achieved appellate court decisions that changed those laws, for the benefit of his clients and many others.
In cases where insurance companies have refused to accept responsibility or even try to understand the nature of his client’s claims and damages, Mr. Streed has helped his clients turn low-ball settlement offers into meaningful jury awards, e.g.: verdicts of $245,000 and $440,000 in Dakota County; a verdict of $800,000 in Washington County for a client who was no longer able to work in his chosen profession as a skilled and successful automotive technician because of his injuries; a verdict of $82,000 in Anoka County for a single mother of three young sons; and verdicts of $155,000 and $290,000 in Stearns and Burnett County (WI) for working men whose physical abilities to work had been permanently affected by serious injuries.
Mr. Streed helped the mother of an eight year old boy, who was killed while crossing a busy street, overcome an insurance company’s opinion that the boy had “darted out” and was completely at fault. The Ramsey County jury concluded the driver of the car, not the little boy, was primarily at fault and awarded Mr. Streed’s client damages in excess of the insurance company’s policy limits. With Mr. Streed’s representation, a Hennepin County school bus driver, whose case had been rejected by other lawyers, achieved justice and vindication with a jury verdict of $225,000. In western Minnesota, Mr. Streed represented a Sibley County farm wife and mother of two children whose husband/father had been killed in a collision involving a semi-tractor trailer. The resulting wrongful death verdict against the semi driver and his insurance company was the largest verdict in that county’s history and made a significant difference in the family’s ability to continue to farm. Those are some examples of how Mark Streed and his excellent staff have made a positive difference in the lives of clients needing help.
As a Personal Injury Trial Lawyer, Mr. Streed’s experience, proven results for his clients and achievements have earned him the designation as a Civil Trial Specialist, certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy and the Minnesota State Bar Association. Since 2002, he has annually been recognized as a “Super Lawyer” by the Minnesota Journal of Law and Politics.
Mark Streed resides in Eagan, Minnesota with his wife, Mary Dorsey Streed, and their three children.
